2011 Training Log–Week 18

Took it pretty easy this week leading up to the 50 mile race on Saturday.  Had some major mechanical issues during the race, but felt awesome otherwise.  Despite the physical problems, I had a great time on a beatiful course and got to see lots of friends.

Monday
Run – 7.1 / 1:06 / 136avg
Mostly easy. Threw in a couple of surges, then 2 x .5mi. 5:40 pace on first, 5:50 pace on second. Harder than I would have liked, but gotta start somewhere. Will be happier once those are mile repeat times…
Tuesday
Run – 6 / 46:12 / 149avg
Very hilly. Coughing less finally. Legs aren’t feeling too snappy, tried to push things a little – but just felt blocked.
Wednesday
Run – 6 / 1:01 / 132avg
Very easy jog at the boneyard. Feeling just a tiny bit better overall today.
Thursday
OFF
Friday
OFF
Saturday
Run – 50 / 9:17 / 146avg
Collegiate Peaks 50 miler. Felt something snap in my lower leg at mile 12, should have stopped but didn’t. Will be wearing this name tag at the next ultra reunion:
